Tao & Earth
Don’t worry about going slowly; start panicking when you stop.
How few of us are left!
Why do we not retreat?
Were it not for the king’s politics,
Why would we be stuck in the mud?
Following false advice, even when it come from the top, leads to troubles.
Just as the soldiers of the past regretted the leadership of poor kings,
so you should examine with care the advices you are given – including this advice!
